Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of Gershwin musical Crazy For You is to transfer to the West End next month, playing at the Novello Theatre from Friday 7 October.
Enjoyed by sell-out audiences this Summer at the open air venue, the show is directed by Timothy Sheader and choreographed by Stephen Mear, the team behind the Open Air’s award-winning production of Hello, Dolly!.
Crazy For You replaces Cameron Mackintosh show Betty Blue Eyes at the Novello, which closes on 24 September 2011.
The show has a book by Ken Ludwig and a score by the Gershwin brothers that features many of their most memorable songs, including I Got Rhythm, Someone to Watch Over Me, Embraceable You, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Shall We Dance, But Not For Me, and Nice Work If You Can Get It.
Crazy For You will feature stage veterans Harriet Thorpe and David Burt, alongside Broadway performer Sean Palmer as Bobby Child, Clare Foster as Polly Baker, Kim Medcalf as Irene Roth and Michael McKell as Lank.
